There are various places where you can put references to such programs. I think the easiest of all is to put a shortcut in the startup folder within start menu. Every time you login on Windows, all those programs will run.

See Method Two here: Startup Programs - Change

You can try the other methods if they will suit your situation better.

I'm using a very small portable prog named WhatInStartup, 74 KB (v1.35). It can achieve whatever you require, disable, enable, delete, add a new prog and even jump to the Reg entry. Simple and easy.
Give it a try, if you don't like it just delete the prog.

If you use Ccleaner it also has a feature that allows you to add/remove items from startup using a gui.

I like Startup Delayer - it allows you to control the order in which things get started as well as setting delay intervals - it makes for a more orderly process if you have lots of apples running in your tray as I do.
